Calistoga Art Center - Self Guided Tour: Poetry Open Call





Saturday February 11th through Sunday March 5th 2023

We want poems and we need you.

deadline is February 9th (but have some flexibility) sooner the better

The CAC is creating the 3rd Annual Poetry Walk, a self guided walking tour of Poetry in Calistoga. We ask you to send in poems that resonate with you and if you want, tell us why. Read the requirements below.

  • Poems can be written by you or another author.

  • Poems must be credited to the author.

  • Poems of all kinds are welcome. You may submit up to 3 poems. If submitting more than one poem, send each as a separate attachment and indicate first choice down.

  • Poems must be appropriate for the general public.*

  • Poems can be in another language but must also be translated into English.

  • Submission files/attachments must be labeled with poem title, choice order (if more than one), author and person who submitted. Important to do this so the submission doesn’t get lost.

Deadline for poem submissions is February 9th, 2023. Send in sooner than later. There is some flexibility.

Poem documents will be formatted if needed, laminated and hung around parts of the Calistoga ‘loop’, Logvy and Pioneer Parks and downtown Calistoga, beginning the weekend before Valentines Day, Saturday February 11th and will be up through Sunday March 5th. You can forward this information and invite others to send in poems.

Email ASAP to: or Mail to: CAC, PO Box 197, Calistoga, CA 94515.

A word or google document or any file we can cut and paste from is preferable. Photocopies or scans will be hung as is. Please make sure the work is credited.

Thank you in advance for participating. Spread the word.

Looking forward to reading and learning!
